There are fine lines on the face, and then there are dynamic wrinkles on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by facial expressions and muscles that move with your face such as smile muscles around the eyes or forehead wrinkles from facial expressions. As we age, our wrinkles become more prominent on our face. Injectables such as Botox® make dynamic wrinkles less noticeable. Other wrinkles such as fine lines are more associated with loss of collagen and can be treated with different kinds of injectables that stimulate collagen growth and plump up the skin such as Juvéderm.
Botox® is injected into the muscle and it works by blocking signals in the nerves to the muscles. Botox®causes the muscle to no longercontract. Over time, the wrinkles relax and bring a softer appearance to the face. Wrinkles caused by sun damage do not respond to this kind of treatment, but wrinkles caused by muscle movement shouldimprove. Juvéderm can fill deep lines and wrinkles that don’t respond to Botox® treatments.
